Wolves Reel Off Unan­swered Points

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - SPORTS WEEK - By Randy Moll

GEN­TRY — Lin­coln scored 32 straight points after Gen­try took a 7-6 lead in the sec­ond quar­ter as the Wolves ran their season record to 7-2 go­ing into week 10.

The vic­tory over Gen­try (2-7, 2-4 4A-1) pos­tures Lin­coln into Fri­day’s show­down with Prairie Grove for the third seed out of the 4A-1. Both teams come in with iden­ti­cal 4-2 con­fer­ence records.

The Pi­o­neers held the lead once, in the sec­ond quar­ter, in Fri­day night’s home game against the vis­it­ing Lin­coln Wolves; but Lin­coln quickly re­gained the lead and went on to win the game, 38-13.

Bran­don At­wood, Gen­try’s ju­nior quar­ter­back, gave Gen­try (2-7, 2-5) the 7-6 lead with his 3-yard touch­down run mid­way through the sec­ond quar­ter of the game. Gar­rett Hays scored on a 2-yard run with un­der a minute to play for the Pi­o­neers’ fi­nal score.

Lin­coln rolled off 32 unan­swered points to de­feat Gen­try and set up next week’s third-place game with Prairie Grove.

The Pi­o­neers amassed 135 rush­ing yards and 55 re­ceiv­ing yards in the loss. Pey­ton Wright was the fa­vored re­ceiver, catch­ing the ball five times and pick­ing up 27 yards in the game. Beau Tom­lin picked off a Lin­coln pass in the first half. Gar­rett Hays again led the Pi­o­neers in to­tal tack­les with six so­los and seven as­sists. Dy­lan Kil­gore and Abran Still had seven so­los each.

Caleb Loyd’s 1-yard quar­ter­back keeper and Cam Brown’s 4-yard touch­down run al­lowed the Wolves (7-2, 4-2) to take an 18-7 half­time lead. Loyd then hit Ster­ling Mor­phis with a 25-yard touch­down pass early in the third quar­ter. Chris­tian Crittenden added a 2-yard touch­down run and Bradley Drain scored from 2 yards out.


With the block­ing of Noah Moore (54) and Cam Brown (2), Lin­coln quar­ter­back Caleb Lloyd (15) looks to run through a hole in the Gen­try line dur­ing play in Pioneer Sta­dium be­tween Lin­coln and Gen­try on Fri­day, Oct. 26, 2018. Lloyd, a 4-year starter, is in his sec­ond year at quar­ter­back.
